Continuing the look through images taken in France over the last few years that I had not processed. This was taken in a fish market in Trouville-sur-Mer which is a litte further down the coast from Honfleur in Normandy. It was taken on Bastille Day.

I watched this lady for a little while as she had caught my attention with her forthright manner and some impatience when serving customers to her stall.

This one I feel catches the moment quite well as she waved the bag of prawns at the customer to ask is that all you want then!

Did toy with going mono as I have a natural preference for black and white, but liked the colour in this and the warmth from the tungsten lighting above the stalls.

Love to hear what you think so C&C welcome - particularly do you think this stands up on its own or needs to be seen as part of a series of images?

Thanks for getting this far.

I'm seeing 'Four prawns? You must be joking...' Very nice moment-in-time shot.

Think this stands alone no problem at all. I think we've all been on the wrong end of a grumpy shopkeeper/market trader! Super sharp candid capture, excellent expression.

Great capture, you can almost feel her impatience jumping out of this picture. Alwyn

Black and white could be interesting, too, but I think this works very well in colour. She's certainly what one might, diplomatically, call 'intense'. Smile
